For Daisy Arbella Only

Southern Baptist Hospital (SBH) had long resisted the use of marketing, believing it was not an appropriate activity for a nonprofit organization. By the mid-1980s, however, the erosion of its market share due to growing competition forced SBH to adopt an aggressive marketing strategy.

Its primary initiative was a campaign of television advertisements aimed to reinforce for the general public the image of SBH as a high-quality institution. Because the organization was starting its marketing activities from scratch, ad production and airtime costs were expensive. The television commercials were professionally produced and received critical acclaim from the advertising community.

Following the public’s repeated exposure to these advertisements, a hospital executive requested information about the impact of the advertisements. The idea to study the campaign’s impact had not been considered earlier, and a belated evaluation effort was mounted to determine the extent to which the campaign had achieved the desired effect. Much to the consternation of SBH administrators, the evaluation found that the ads had had virtually no impact on the public’s already high perception of the institution, and no improvement in patient volumes, revenues, or market share could be attributed to the campaign. SBH administrators, committed to an expensive initiative, rationalized that the campaign had not aired long enough to generate the desired effect and invested even more money in the initiative.

After reviewing the above case, address the following points:

  1. To what extent did SBH research the needs of its audience prior to developing a marketing strategy?
  2. Does it appear that SBH has an overall marketing plan?
  3. Does it appear that SBH had a significant grasp of the nature of marketing?
  4. What are the implications of focusing marketing efforts on corporate image rather than the services the organization provides?
  5. What are the implications of marketing to the general public rather than targeting specific segments of the market?
  6. How much thought was given to measuring the effectiveness of the campaign going into the initiative?

DISCUSSION

Psychotherapy Interventions Unique to Person-Centered Therapy

Person-centered therapy uses several interventions to facilitate client change beyond its foundational interventions of unconditional positive regard, reflective listening skills, and a focus on empathy. The role of a person-centered therapist is one of a “partner” or “equal” who sets the conditions whereby clients can reach within themselves and change their lives, bringing their “real” and “ideal” selves closer together. However, beyond setting these conditions, there are interventions that person-centered psychologists use to facilitate client change. In this Discussion, you research and evaluate these interventions with respect to their effectiveness at facilitating positive client change.

To prepare for this Discussion:• Review the journal article, “The Phoenix of Empirically Supported Therapy Relationships: The Overlooked Person-Centered Basis.” Focus on Rogers’ “necessary and sufficient” therapeutic conditions.

Cornelius-White, J. H. D. (2002). The phoenix of empirically supported therapy relationships: The overlooked person-centered basis. Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, Practice, Training, 39(3), 219-222

• Review the journal article, “Showing Clients the Doors: Active Problem-Solving in Person-Centered Psychotherapy.” Pay particular attention to applying a problem-solving approach within a person-centered framework.

Knight, T. A. (2007). Showing clients the doors: Active problem-solving in person-centered psychotherapy. Journal of Psychotherapy Integration, 17(1), 111-124.

  • Manual: DSM-5

• Review the basic tenets of person-centered therapy.• Conduct a brief (2–3 articles) literature search for person-centered psychotherapy interventions that facilitate positive client change.• Select one intervention and evaluate its empirical support. Think about how person-centered theory draws from or contributes to evidence-based practice.

With these thoughts in mind:Post by Day 4 a description of one intervention specific to person-centered theory. Include an analysis of the intervention’s empirical support. Is the intervention tailored toward specific populations or problems? Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources and use empirically supported research to support your points of view. Follow proper APA Style guidelines.

I NEED A POSITIVE COMMENT BASED IN THIS ARGUMENT..BETWEEN 150-200 WORDS

Evidence based practice is the use of current evidence in making decisions in health care for the patients in the safest and most efficient ways. Pressure ulcer prevention is one of the nursing practices that have been improved by the evidence based practice studies. Using the braden scale was once an important tool for knowing the chances of skin breakdown. Based on studies they developed the interventions that could be used to prevent a patient from skin breakdown based on what stage they are in.

Rapid response teams (RRT) are important in the hospital they have been known to improve patient outcomes in acute emergency settings. Having a RRT is a good way to help get a patient into a stable situation when they are not doing well before they get to the point of cardiac arrest or respiratory distress situations. Through evidence based medicine they were able to see how important a RRT is and get them started in all hospital settings.
